This Feature Could Make the iPhone 17 Outshine the Entire iPhone 16 Lineup This Year

Next year, the iPhone 17 series will have a breakthrough in photography on the front camera after many years of keeping it the same.



According to famous analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, the iPhone 17 series will have a 24-megapixel front camera - double the current resolution.




The above information was shared in a post on Medium. Previously, the iPhone 14 and iPhone 15 series only had a 12-megapixel front camera with 5 plastic lenses.





The iPhone 16 series is expected to have similar hardware. With the ‌iPhone‌ 17 Series, Apple will upgrade the hardware to a 24-megapixel camera with a 6-element lens - 6P. Mr. Kuo said that the upgrade will significantly improve the image quality of the front camera.




History of front camera on iPhone.




- iPhone 6S: 5 megapixel front camera with ƒ/2.2 aperture and 4P lens





- iPhone 7, iPhone X and iPhone XS: 7 megapixel front camera with ƒ/2.2 aperture and 4P lens




- iPhone 11, iPhone 12 and iPhone 13: 12 megapixel front camera with ƒ/2.2 aperture and 5P lens




- iPhone 14, iPhone 15 and iPhone 16: 12 megapixel front camera with ƒ/1.9 aperture, autofocus and 5P lens





- iPhone 17: 24 megapixel front camera with autofocus and 6P lens




The upgraded resolution to 24 megapixels is noteworthy because this sensor will provide more detailed and clearer images. With higher resolution, photos can maintain quality even when cropped or enlarged, providing more flexibility in post-processing. Additionally, a larger number of pixels can capture finer details, making images sharper and more vivid.





Upgrading to a 6-element lens will also improve image quality. That's because each element can be designed to correct different aberrations and distortions, resulting in clearer, more accurate photos. Additional components can also improve the efficiency of light transmission to the sensor, enhancing performance in low light conditions.




It's worth noting that the ‌iPhone‌ 17 Pro will be the first ‌‌iPhone‌‌ to feature under-display Face ID technology, which could reduce the size of the Dynamic Island area, leaving a circular cutout for the front camera. The ‌iPhone‌ 17 Pro will also be Apple's last high-end iPhone Pro with a "hole-punch" detail for the front camera. Apple ​will then adopt the under-display camera solution on 2027 ‌‌iPhone‌‌ "Pro" models for a true "full-screen" look.





Therefore, if this year's iPhone 16 series is not attractive enough, iFan can wait until next year to witness a more spectacular change in photography capabilities.
